Currently harvesting - lots and lots of salad (various mixes, landcress, pea tops, rocket, sorrel), chard which has been going since about this time last year (died off a bit under 6 inches of snow in winter then came back to life), radishes (and the pods off the ones that bolted, yum), turnips, loads of garlic, a few onions, peas and the odd broad bean.

Impatiently waiting for - courgettes, beetroot, tomatoes, fennel, and assorted berries.

First lot of blackberries are ready. Black Russian (Noire de Russie?) is always one of our first tomatoes, but many varieties are ripening now. We are well into our first lot of sweetcorn (Earlybird) but I tried a non-F1 type, Golden Bantam, as the 2nd succession - but I think I will have to pretend that they are mini-corn (to be be fair they got hit by the cold spell, but they will be ready in about 2 weeks and the cobs are pathetically small).

We are having tomatoes, cucmbers from the cucumber plant that will not die, had one pepper but a bit bitter, carrots are nearly there I think but not pulled any yet. Strawbs all gone - poor crop this year....anyone else? Chard we have a glut! Salad leaves still going strong.

Potatoes in barrels - when to harvest? massive foliage, no flowers yet. Planted mid-spring.
